Glamour hotel for suburban Melbourne

When I think of Avani properties, I tend to consider chic, designer resorts like the one overlooking the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.

When I think of Box Hill, my mind guides to me a Melbourne suburb with a lot of high-rise buildings 14km from the the CBD. A lot of trams seem to go there. 

Avani and Box Hill would seem an unlikely combination but Avani Hotels and Resorts is now welcoming guests to a newly developed hotel property located in what it describes as "the bustling, up-and-coming suburb of Box Hill". 

Avani Melbourne Box Hill Residences launched is located close to Box Hill's shopping and food precinct, Station Street, known for its wide range of Asian eateries.

With 75 one- and two-bedroom suites featuring chef-style kitchens, the hotel facilities include a heated roof-top infinity pool, spa and an on-site gym and sauna. 

A rooftop entertaining space is available for private guest bookings, including an outdoor barbecue and fire-pit, and a full open-plan kitchen with views of the Melbourne city skyline, Dandenong Ranges and Box Hill Gardens.

It is being spruiked as "the ideal base for both business and leisure travellers" - which may be just a little optimistic. 

Avani currently operates 27 hotels and resorts in 19 countries. It is part of the Thailand-based hospitality chain Minor Hotels. 

The brand recently debuted in Cambodia, South Korea, and Bali. It also has 15 new hotels in the pipeline, including upcoming properties in Malaysia, the UAE, and Myanmar.

Rates at Avani Box Hill Residences start from $150, so what you might lose in convenience you can save in cold, hard cash. 

Guests can contact Avani Melbourne Box Hill Residences on 1300 176 911 or email
